Scars occur after a wound or cut heals. It is an area, usually a line of fibrous tissue that builds up in place of healthy skin during the progression of healing. Facial scar revision procedures have significantly advanced. Dr. Ardesh is a respected leader of minimally invasive scar revision therapy in Los Angeles.


Scar revision surgery

Large, raised, or highly visible facial scars as a result of an injury or surgery may have the best chance of a satisfactory revision by surgery. There are many ways a scar can form, much depends upon how the wound was treated during healing.

Removing a scar with surgery allows for the reclosing of the incision with specific cosmetic techniques designed to produce a thinner, less visible scar with less contrast and positioned along folds or creases.

Dermabrasion scar revision

Dermabrasion is a procedure that tones down shallow scars by delicately scraping the top layers of the scar. It often results in a revitalized looking area where the scar seems to disappear into the general tone of the skin. Dermabrasion is generally only used for people with fair skin as there is little risk of discoloration. Microdermabrasion can work for darker skin tones.

Laser scar revision

Laser scar treatment could make scars less noticeable and restore range of motion if the scar was restricting facial movement. Laser treatment will not entirely remove the scar, but you may be amazed at how well it blends after treatment. Your laser treatment should be performed with a high degree of skill. It’s not just the type of laser machine; it is the person delivering the procedure with the device. Dr. Ardesh is a double-board certified plastic surgeon who is passionate about achieving exceptional results in scar revision.

Plasma rich platelets (PRP) for scar revision

PRP is one of the most promising regenerative treatments for scar revision procedures. Blood cannot penetrate scar tissue, but PRP extracted from a blood sample injected directly into the scar, can stimulate healing and reduce the appearance of the scar. PRP therapy can be added to the laser treatment or surgical scar revision to speed healing and achieve smoother results.

Combination scar revision

Dr. Ardesh considers all of these scar revision options in possible combinations that can effectively treat any type of scar. A scar is where the regeneration of healthy tissue has halted. There advanced combinations of therapies that revise scar tissue far better than has ever before been possible.

During your consultation, Dr. Ardesh will assess the type and degree of scarring and its depth and will discuss with you what combination of treatments and in what sequence will work best for you.
